accumulation

A build-up, assembly; the process of accumulating, collecting together.
 
Medspeak
The progressive increase in the concentration of a chemical, drug, or other agent in an organism or tissue, due to higher doses than can be metabolised, or due to poor metabolism of the agent; the amount of a drug or therapeutic agent in the body, which after the drug has reached a state of equilibrium, is a function of the dose interval and the drug’s T1⁄2.

Equilibrium usually requires a time interval of 4- to 6-times the drug’s half-life, and depends on the rates of absorption and elimination; the drug continues to accumulate until the amount of drug administered in a time period equals that eliminated in the same period.
 
Factors in accumulation
Selective binding of the drug in tissues, concentration of fat soluble drugs in fat, absent or slow metabolism of the drug, slow excretion of the drug, and intercurrent illness; accumulation continues until the amount eliminated per dosage interval is equal to the amount administered during that time.

accumulation

A build-up, assembly; the process of accumulating, collecting together Therapeutics The amount of drug in the body relative to the amount lost by elimination, which is a function of ratio of the dose interval and the drug's half-life; accumulation continues until the amount eliminated per dosage interval is equal to the amount administered during that time. Cf Absorption.

in which taxes would not have been increased and where capital accumulation therefore would have been higher.
In another model by Galor and Moav (2004), it is demonstrated that in the early stage of modern economic development, high inequality encourages growth as the rich have a higher propensity to save, whereas at later stages high inequality may discourage growth as human capital becomes increasingly important and high inequality may be an impediment to human capital accumulation.
Individual human capital can be divided into skills in final good production ([H.sub.Y]), school attendance ([H.sub.H]), networking for social capital accumulation ([H.sub.S]), and conducting R&D ([H.sub.R]), in a division similar to that of Lucas (1988), used to differentiate between human capital allocated to the final good and to schooling, and also used in Dinda (2008).
This evidence points to the drop in investment and the resulting slowdown of capital accumulation as the main causes behind the loss of potential GDP.

Therefore, capital accumulation and growth would be faster in an economy without perfect insurance than in one with perfect insurance.
The capital accumulation rate decreased in all countries, while unemployment; the ratio of financial income to the share of operating surplus for NFBs; the ratio of operating income of NFBs to operating surplus of the entire economy; dividend and interest income as a share of total household income (renters household income share); renters' share of NFBs; renters' payments over operating surplus of NFBs; and the ratio of operating surplus of NFBs divided by the operating surplus of the entire economy all increased substantially.
So the contribution of physical capital accumulation increased from 45 percent in the first period to 69 percent in the second period.
Consequently, we extend the benchmark model to include spillovers in the human capital accumulation process.
